28 female Heads of State and Government currently in office worldwide

The Worldwide Guide to Women in Leadership has published an overview of Female Heads of State and Government Currently in Office. While there are 192 States recognised by the United Nations and many countries have a Head of State and a Head of Government, there are only 28 women holding such positions worldwide, and two of these are leaders of self-governing external territories rather than independent States. Eight such women are from EU Member States. Only three women sit in the European Council, the leaders of Germany, Lithuania and Slovakia.
